Default set a bool false by number of bars

I have 2 questions along the same vein. 1) Is there a way to set a bool false according the to an amount of bars since set true? 2) This question is vague, but maybe just a different way of expressing the first (My brain isn't working well today). Once a condition is true and another opposing condition becomes true with a bar or two, is there a way to say "disregard 2nd condition if hit within 2 bars of 1st"? I would really appreciate help on this one. Thanks

You could create an int counter and just increment it as new bars are built. When the counter reaches a certain value, set your bool to false and then reset the counter back down to 0.
